WASHINGTON, D.C. — Liberty Technology Magnet High School band was part of the Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. Liberty Tech was one of about 20 schools that were a part of the day. This was the first time they’ve participated. Band director Benjamin Martin said it was a great experience for his 73 students who marched. “It was phenomenal to see all the people,” Martin said. “It was a great day of patriotism and remembering our veterans and the ones who have fallen.” Memorial Day was the band’s final performance of the school year, and soon they will be going to band camp to prepare for the fall.
